M.I.A. released (“leaked”) a new mixtape at 7pm EST on New Year’s Eve. It features b-sides and rarities and is called Vicki Leekx. The nineteen song mix (which is actually a single track) features production from M.I.A., Danja, Munchi, Diplo, Blaqstarr, Switch, Rusko, Sugu Arulpragasam and So Japan.. Download it for the price of an email address.

Vicki Leekx (rhymes with Wiki Leaks) is the follow-up to 2010’s / \ / \ / \ Y / \, which was recently awarded 5th “Most Underrated Album” of 2010 in the Pitchfork Readers Poll. MGMT were #1 on that list. MGMT were also #14 on the list of “Most Overrated” artists, and they have a new release this week too. Daytrotter released a live session by them today.
